The handheld Fluke Networks AirCheck is a top notch Wi-Fi analyzer tool for front line network techs, seen here sniffing the crowded airwaves at eWEEK Labs.
The Fluke Networks AirCheck wireless network analyzer is a tool that should be added to the "must have list for front line network pros who must have immediate access to local radio conditions but don't want to walk around holding an open laptop. The AirCheck device is a rugged, handheld tool with a clear, bright display that provides nearly instant access to essential network troubleshooting information. The AirCheck device can capture local conditions and upload this data to the AirCheck Manager software. The AirCheck Manager makes it easy to dig deeper into the data and issue helpful reports that IT managers can use to diagnose and clean up network problems. Read eWEEK Labs' review of AirCheck here.
